Wike releases 22 Exxonmobil staff, despite ongoing court prosecution

Rivers State Government, Nyesom Wike, has finally released the 22 Exxonmobill staff arrested in for violating the state’s lockdown order.

Recall Wike had earlier vowed to prosecute the arrested employees of ExxonMobil staff, stressing that a test case for the country’s laws, he said.

However, TheNewsGuru gathered that the Attorney General of Rivers State said the case has been dropped.

A source at Exxonmobil who spoke to TNG said”The attorney General of Rivers State just addressed us, says the case against us has been dropped, we are no longer going to court and we should leave. The convoy is about to leave the stadium now.”

Meanwhile, Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN, Sunday directed members to shut operations and all activities at the nation’s oil rigs and export terminals from midnight over the detention of 21 offshore members by the Rivers State Government since Thursday.

A statement by the association’s leadership partly reads“B: y midnight Sunday 19th April 2020, all Export facilities will stop operation as well as suspension of Production & Maintenance Services Reports. By 12 noon on Monday 20th April all our members will withdraw all forms of services relating to crude oil production, refining, distribution and supplies.”
